Mommy S came to PACN at the beginning of her pregnancy. Due to a medical misdiagnosis, she and her husband did not know if they could have a baby. They were so excited when the pregnancy test was positive, and PACN provided the first ultrasound, before Mommy S was under a doctor’s care. She and her husband are expecting a baby girl this fall! Read more about her story below.
Q: How have PACN services been helpful to you and your family?
A: PACN has been such a blessing to my family and me. In the beginning we thought we had it all mapped out. We had some issues with the health insurance that held me back for a while from checking on my baby my first trimester. It was sort of a long wait for everything to go through and I was worried about my baby. In the meantime, I knew about PACN. I went there and got lots of advice and I was even able to schedule my first ultrasound with them. They offer all these different classes and help. I felt so much better leaving there. They told me that they also offer free maternity and newborn photo shoots. I was so happy about that. PACN is a true blessing.
Q: What advice would you give to other moms who come to PACN for our services?
A: My advice to all the other moms is “PPP”. Pray, be patient and stay positive. My husband and I say and use the 3 P’s every day. It has never failed us. Have faith and claim whatever you have been asking for in the name of Jesus.
Q: What’s the best thing about being pregnant? The hardest thing?
A: The best thing about being pregnant for me is being pregnant, considering the fact that I didn’t think I would get pregnant or was going to have a hard time trying to get pregnant. I was diagnosed with something called PCOS about two years ago. It’s a hormone disorder and it makes it hard to get pregnant. Some may not ever get pregnant, depending on how severe. I was sad when I heard this. I was depressed when I saw other babies, but I prayed long and hard that the Lord will bless me with a healthy baby. I never stopped praying for my baby. Originally we were going to try next year, but we had a change of heart and decided to try this year. I went to a specialist and got another opinion. He kept telling me I do not have PCOS. I was misdiagnosed. He told me everything I needed to do to get pregnant before I went home that day. I did everything he told me to do. I saw him two weeks later and I was pregnant! My husband and I were so happy. The hardest thing about being pregnant for me was the morning sickness my first trimester. It was so overwhelming for me. I am so glad I am past that part and my pregnancy is almost over :).
Q: When are you due?
A: Right now, I am seven months pregnant with my daughter and loving it :)!
